Beeswax has a rich history, since ancient times it has been seen as a magical substance.




For ancient Egyptians, the unique physical properties of beeswax made it useful for it’s water-resistance, malleability & low melting point.



Beeswax was used to preserve the curls and plaits in wigs and could be used as a face cream. In medicine it was used as an adhesive for bandages and to bind active ingredients into pills.

Boats were waterproofed with beeswax and complex metal shapes were created using the ‘lost wax’casting technique.
